Tool & Cutter Grinder

Repco tool & cutter grinder which I purchased with the intetion of restoring it to use in my workshop. I have run out of space in my shed and this machine needs to go. I have stripped the machine to bare metal and painted with enamel epoxy hammertone blue and cream. Silver enamel for the pulleys and other parts. I have restored most of the machine but it needs the electric motors sorting out and associated belt drives. This is a good solid machine, made when things were made to last. The machine is made from cast iron and is quite heavy, I estimate 700-800kg. I have the original motors but they may not be suitable. 1hp GE three phase motor appears to have a bent armature ie(will rotate 180degrees where resistance is felt). Spindle motor is 1/3 hp single phase, (looks kinda old school, but may well work if refurbished), so I have sourced another motor which is the blue one pictured on the spindle mount, 1100w 2850rpm, 15a. I have all of the drive pulleys required, coolant pump and coolant tank. I have not restored the cast iron coolant tank as I planned to replace it with an aluminium version. I have fitted flush mount bedway oilers  and fitted some stainless steel bolts in place of the old steel ones. The spindle and tailstock have Morse#3 tapers. Spindle is indexable, ( would be good for grinding tapers, straight cylindrical grinding,grinding end mills). Machine comes with 20 plus grinding wheels. I hope this machine will go to someone who will be able to use to it's full capacity. An engine lifter would be required to lift this machine onto a truck or trailer, or it would need to be disassembled (as I did) to be moved, I am able to help with loading. I have many more photo's available but ebay won't let me post more. Ask if you need other photo's. Questions welcome. I really need this item gone. I am willing to reduce the price to $100 less than I paid for it before resto. ie $800. must be able to pick up, no freight. Apparently EBAY won't let me revise my starting price so please take my description as the REVISED starting price $800.
